Legal Wit — Get By With a Little Help

Legal Wit — Get By With a Little Help

The law considers it generally fair that persons who commit a crime together shall be tried for it together. Is it not equally fair, if one accused being so tried has more complicated defences than another, that the accused with the more straight forward defence ought to get by, as the Beatles might say, by giving a little time to his friend?
